When Elizabeth Montgomery is mentioned, her iconic nose twitch from “Bewitched” immediately comes to mind. She rose to fame in the 1960s, but sadly, she passed away unexpectedly in 1995.

As a writer at Newsner, I’ve covered many talented women, but Elizabeth captured my heart from the start. Unlike many actors who rely on makeup and stylists, Elizabeth’s natural beauty shone through effortlessly, especially in “Bewitched.”

But what happened to Elizabeth after “Bewitched”? In 2023, she would have turned 90, but let’s reflect on her career before her untimely death.

Born in Los Angeles on April 15, 1933, to Broadway actress parents, acting was ingrained in her from an early age. Despite her father’s fame, she pursued her own path, making her TV debut on his show. She continued to flourish on Broadway and in films, finding success but facing personal challenges in love.

Elizabeth found lasting love with William Asher, a director, and TV producer. They married in 1963 and had three children.

Her role as Samantha Stephens in “Bewitched” made her a household name, but she didn’t stop there. She starred in various TV shows and movies, showcasing her versatility beyond the witch’s nose twitch.

However, tragedy struck when she was diagnosed with colon cancer. Despite battling the disease for years and believing she was cancer-free, it returned, spreading to her liver. Elizabeth passed away in 1995 at the age of 62, leaving behind a legacy of talent and beauty. Her family and friends honored her at a memorial, celebrating her remarkable life and career.

Elizabeth’s ability to portray diverse characters left a lasting impact on her fans. Her natural charm and talent will always be remembered fondly, reminding us of the timeless beauty and talent that she possesses.
